Mobilift CX – Portable Stage Lifts

Handi-Ramp’s portable stage lift is a multipurpose, portable, vertical platform lifting device that provides access to school stages, outdoor bleachers, and elevated platforms for persons who use wheelchairs, scooters or can not access stairways.

Able to be used both indoors and outdoors to vertically transport a wheelchair user or otherwise mobility-impaired person up and over a low-rise barrier created by stairs, this stage lift can create access to or within buildings. Providing a variety of solutions for stages where room for a ramp is not available or which a number of different stages of a variety of heights need to be accessed, this economical portable wheelchair lift helps eliminate barriers.

Over 1000 units are currently in use in schools, colleges, churches, auditoriums and historic buildings to provide access. Portable stage lifts are ideal where structural modifications are impractical, unattractive, prohibited for historic reasons, or too costly. Unlike other vertical platform lifts, the Mobilift CX is manually powered making it easy to use and highly portable. The absence of batteries, hydraulic and electric components make the portable stage lift extremely reliable and virtually maintenance free.

The Mobilift manual wheelchair lift is exactly what we needed. It is easy to use and move around, yet once the mechanism is set in place, it is solid and stationary. We have been pleased in using it to get our wheelchair students onto the stage in our auditorium. When we do not use it, we wheel it into a corner where it is out of the way. I would recommend this unit for other schools.

Our University has many historical buildings which were not designed or entry by the disabled. The lift is very mobile, easy to position, easy to operate and flexible. Operators need minimum training and the device is low in maintenance time and cost. We have used the lift in garden areas where electrical sources are non-existent.

The lift has been used 800 times in two years, and has operated remarkably well. Due to the great distance we have to push the Mobilift from storage each morning, we have been really pleased with how easy it is to move around. The speed with which you provided a customized version was nothing short of amazing.

This 70 year old church building is accessible at last! …it has enabled us to remove our most serious passive barrier. At last we can say “All can worship.”
